'I DIDN'T KNOW THERE WAS CAKE ETIQUETTE'

HEY FOLKS

SO IT WOULD SEEM THAT SOMETHING TRULY FANTASTIC/SURREAL
IS KICKING OFF IN MY HOME TOWN NEXT WEEK…

WHEN MY DAD FIRST STARTED TO TELL ME OF THE PLANS TO HOUNOR MY 40TH BIRTHDAY
I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A RATHER SMALL AFFAIR

BUT AS THE WEEKS HAVE GONE ON AND THE ARTICLES IN THE SENTINEL (LOCAL NEWSPAPER THAT I READ ON LINE)
HAVE BECOME ALMOST A DAILY OCCURRENCE IT SEEMS THAT THINGS HAVE SOME WHAT SNOW BALLED…

I'VE GONE FROM HAVING A SENTIMENTAL WARM FEELING IN MY HEART
TO NOW HAVING A FULL ON PANIC ''WHAT IF NO ONE TURNS UP!''

I ACTUALLY CAN'T GET MY HEAD AROUND IT ….

ROADS NAMED AFTER MY SONGS, A PLAQUE PUT UP IN THE PARK I USED TO PLAY IN, A MUSEUM ATTRACTION WITH MY MEMORABILIA A MINI FESTIVAL !?!
ECT ECT ECT ECT ….

IT ALL FEELS LIKE ITS HAPPENING TO SOME ONE ELSE
WHO COMES FROM THE SAME PLACE I COME FROM
SOMEONE WHO'S FAR MORE DESERVING

WHEN I CATCH MY BREATH OR STILL MY MIND FOR A MOMENT THE MAGNITUDE OF THIS GREAT HONOUR
FILLS ME WITH IMMENSE PRIDE AND A FOREBODING TO NOT LET YOU ALL DOWN

I WEAR WHERE IM FROM LIKE A BADGE OF HONOUR
ALWAYS HAVE DONE ALWAYS WILL DO
(I LITERALLY HAVE BURSLEMS CREST TATTOOED ON MY LEFT ARM)
INFACT NOWHERE HAS TRULY FELT LIKE HOME SINCE I LEFT
IAM A STOKIE BORN AND BREAD

UNFORTUNATELY I WONT BE ABLE TO BE THERE FOR THE CELEBRATIONS MYSELF SADLY.
BECAUSE UNBEKNOWNST TO ME MY WIFE HAS PLANNED A RATHER LARGE AND INTRICATE
SURPRISE FEW DAYS WHICH DUE TO THE CELEBRATION SHE HAD TO TELL ME ABOUT …
SHE'S GUTTED IM GUTTED AND WE ALL WISH THAT WE COULD BE THERE
ALAS I'VE ASLO GOT A WORK TRIP TO AUSTRALIA IMMEDIATELY AFTER ..WHICH MAKES
IT A GEOGRAPHICAL IMPOSSIBILITY COS IM IN LA RIGHT NOW

EITHER WAY PLANS ARE AFOOT FOR ME TO HAVE AN OFFICIAL CELEBRATION
IN STOKE SOON,CAN'T WAIT…!

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT GRANDMA BERTHA AND GRANDAD JACK
WOULD THINK OF IT ALL

LIKE THEM I HOPE I MAKE YOU ALL PROUD .

BEFORE I START BLARTING
IM OFF TO MIX WITH THESE NESH BUGGERS ER' IN LA

HERE'S TO YOU IN OATCAKES AND LOVE

ROBERT FROM GREEN BANK RD ….ST67HA

  • Robbie my Mum & me have been fans for a long time, & it seems you've now captured the heart of my 3 year old sister... in her words ... "I really love Robbie Williams and he loves me". She particularly likes Go Gentle and Soda Pop. What I'm trying to say is.. thanks for the music
